RIME Debut Solo Exhibit at JLG Not To Miss!

An exhibit I have been waiting for since announced late last fall is non other than Brooklyn born and based, acclaimed graffiti artist RIME, (a.k.a. Jersey Joe.)  This is his debut solo show "Conclusions" is taking place at Jonathan Levine Gallery through March 19, 2016 at the (original) 529 W. 20th Street location with new, exhilarating canvas paintings accompanied by a few special, large wood works. 
RIME has over twenty-five years of experience in graffiti and is recognized as an esteemed artist with adventurous style. Influenced by cartoons and his outlandish life experiences he is an idiosyncratic storyteller, allowing improvisation to guide his brush and narratives. He is part of the MSK cru and the artists collective The Seventh Letter (both Los Angeles based.)

RIME began painting graffiti at the age of twelve in Staten Island and spent his teenage years developing his skills and creating his own brand of characters. By 2003 he had earned international recognition under the handles “Rime” and “Jersey Joe.” In 2005, RIME moved to Los Angeles and has exhibited in cities around the world, including solo shows at Galerie Wallworks (Paris) in 2014 and 2015. Have a look and be sure to catch it by mid March....
